Everyday Brownies

March 6, 2008 at 8:40 am | Posted in Dessert | 15 Comments

The other night brownies sounded so good. It was getting close to 7pm, so my dear hubby offered to hop in the car and go pick some up…something he is very good at! I decided to wait until the next day and make my own.

All night I thought about what to make and kept going back to Ina’s Outrageous Brownies. But when it came time to cream all of the butter and sugar, I just couldn’t do it. I didn’t want all of that in my body. It would be one thing if I was making them for a friends or some event, but this was just a regular weeknight.

So I decided to try No Pudge Brownies. These are touted as a no fat brownie mix that you simply add yogurt to.

Of course, I couldn’t just pick any yogurt after finding BrandAid. After reading the yogurt article I decided upon Stonyfield Farm’s low-fat vanilla yogurt. I also stirred in 2/3 cup of chocolate chips.

The results, brownies!

By the way, I didn’t intend for this to be product endorsement week, sometimes that’s just how life is!

  4. Woooooowwwwww. That looks SO chewy and wonderful!!

  5. Those brownies ARE wonderful! They even have directions for how to make single brownies in the microwave. I’ve done that and they turn out really well (I’m so afraid to have a pan of brownies in the house with just two of us). I was thinking the other day of blogging about this, but you beat me to it! 😉

  6. Vic- I did notice the single serving directions, sounds perfect for a small household.

    Mary- Are you teasing me and my floating brownie photo…I was having such a hard time with the early morning light!

  7. I had these brownies back in my weight watcher days. I really like how you incorporate treats into a healthy lifestyle. You rock!
